Thanks to all ICMC20 Virtual attendees. Plans for ICMC21 will be announced soon.
The coming year will see widespread changes in commercial cryptography: The highly-anticipated FIPS 140-3 standard for cryptographic modules becomes effective in late 2020. At the same time, European regulators are moving forward with independent cryptographic standards. Interest in open source solutions has greatly expanded. And legacy systems are under a growing threat as the need for quantum-resistant algorithms increases each year.
In the face of these and other changes, hundreds of cryptographic professionals will meet virtually for the International Cryptographic Module Conference (ICMC20). The conference will survey the new FIPS 140-3 standard, discuss the effect on current certifications, and report on the progress of the Automated Cryptographic Validation Program. Participants will take a close look at new certification standards emerging in Europe, and examine the growing emphasis on cryptographic certification by schemes in China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and others. Three days of presentations will survey the open source cryptographic protocols that power the Internet and the cutting-edge post-quantum crypto work that will insure future security.
ICMC is the leading annual event for global expertise in commercial cryptography. At ICMC20 Virtual over 400 industry leaders from 27 countries will come together to address the unique challenges faced by those who develop, produce, test, specify, and use cryptographic modules, with a strong focus on standards such as FIPS 140-3, ISO/IEC 19790, eEIDAS, and Common Criteria. The conference helps to foster a focused, organized community of users. ICMC reviews technical issues underlying cryptographic implementation including physical security, key management, side-channel analysis, open-source development, algorithm testing, quantum threats, embedded applications, standardization, validation programs, government policy, professional ethics, and more.
On Wednesday, September 30, the CSfC Virtual Conference will focus on the National Security Agency’s (NSA) program to leverage commercial hardware and software technologies certified for Common Criteria in support of national security objectives.
ICMC is designed for anyone involved with data security based in commercial encryption, especially those who develop, manufacture, test, specify or use certified commercial off the shelf cryptographic modules, with a special focus on standards like FIPS 140-3, ISO/IEC 19790, PCI, and common criteria. Participants include cryptographic module developers, testing labs, government standards organizations, private schemes, embedded systems OEMs, academics, and the side channel research community.
EU Cyber Act Conference Call for Speakers Deadline Extended: 6 Jan 21. The Conference Program Committee seeks proposals from professionals with experience in technology, application, and policy of certification standards. Scheduled for 24 March. EUCyberAct.org
